Scott Free London was set up by award-winning film-maker Ridley Scott in early 2010 to develop and produce UK-originated theatrical features and high-end television drama.
January 2017 has seen the launch of TABOO, an 8×1-hour period drama written by Steven Knight, co-produced with Hardy Son and Baker and starring Tom Hardy for BBC One in the UK and FX Networks in the US, with Sonar Entertainment handling international distribution.
Scott Free London’s next theatrical release is Sean Foley’s comedy MINDHORN, written by and starring Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby. Studio Canal will release theatrically in the UK in May 2017, with Netflix handling the rest of the world.
The company is currently in production on period drama The Aftermath for Fox Searchlight starring Keira Knightley, Alexander Skarsgard and Jason Clarke and directed by James Kent.
INDIA IN A DAY, directed by Richie Mehta, is the latest iteration of the company’s ground-breaking IN A DAY franchise, and premiered at the Toronto Film Festival 2016.
Previous features also include Rowan Joffe’s psychological thriller BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, and Christopher Smith’s family comedy GET SANTA starring Jim Broadbent and Rafe Spall.
Scott Free London has a number of feature and television projects in development, and operates in close conjunction with the London office of RSA Films, one of the world’s largest and most successful commercial production houses, as well as its sister company Scott Free Productions in Los Angeles, California.
